I plan to visit a knitting group in Seoul - SeoulSnb - on Tuesday February 2nd at 7 pm. They meet at Starbucks in Itaewon. I´m so excited. I´ve heard that knitting is really popular in Korea. Because of the language barrier there are not many Korean knitters in the group. I was informed that most of the people in the Seoul stitch n bitch group are "expats" (expatriates = people who live in a country that is not their own) American, Canadian or Australian.

Other plans for my week in Seoul are to visit the Dongdaemun shopping center where I heard that the yarn market is huge. I aslo want to visit the DMZ, the National Museum of Korea, the Namsan (Seoul) Tower, the Gyenongbukdong palace, the Haneul Park, the cultural village in Suwon and as I travel with my 17-year old daughter there will be a lot of shopping. At the Embassy they adviced me that the area were we stay - Hongik Univ. - is one of the best shopping areas for young people. They also recommended the following areas: Sinchon, Gangnam, Myenong-dong and Seoul Station.

We will stay at NAMU guesthouse from January 30th to February 2nd and at LEE&NO guesthouse from February 3rd to February 5th. We thought that the Lee & No Guesthouse looked more cozy, but there was no twin room available until February 3rd. Both guesthouses have the same owner.
